Pointing fingers in the aftermath of the Norway Massacre

The Sun newspaper's front page headline after the Norway massacre which killed 93 people and left 96 injured screamed "Al Qaeda Massacre", and referred to Anders Behring Breivik as a "home-grown Al Qaeda convert".

Irresponsibly the paper vehemently blamed Muslims for the attack whilst admitting it did not know who carried it out. The facts show that Breivik has no links with Al Qaeda. Rather, he loaths Muslims and wants to maintain a Christian Europe.

In trying to understand why Norway was the target of this terrorist attack, the article pointed out that Norway is a member of NATO and plays an active part in both Afghanistan and Libya. Equally, Norway has taking a stand against Muslim fundamentalists within the country.
